Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


MRI can be used to assist in distinguishing pathology and anatomic disruptions adjacent to shoulder articulations and is a crucial tool in evaluating the symptomatic shoulder. The differentiation of traumatic and degenerative etiologies is important for patient management. A review of common adult degenerative and posttraumatic conditions can help familiarize general orthopaedic surgeons and sports medicine care providers to the perspective of shoulder specialists and musculoskeletal radiologists.
